One of the kings of the candle tin, Voluspa know how to make a stylish impact with luxurious coconut wax and tin. In this instance, it’s all about the citrusy and fabulous fruity fragrance with notes of Goji Berry, Mango, and Tarocco Orange. The ruby and gold design supercharges the luxuriousness.
A posh tin, a squashed tin, a rather fabulous-looking vintage tin. Le Labo’s Santal 26 is a seductive scent with a Smoky and Leathery personality – a must for sophisticated settings. We love its quirkiness; a bit like wearing Wellington boots to a dinner party in fine aristocratic fashion.
Freshness in a tin. The delightfulness of fresh Ginger is a tonic for tired interiors. One whiff of this will rejuvenate and invigorate the living room. It’s all things Citrus and Spice with a hearty gathering of Lemongrass, Ginger, Black Pepper, and Lemon. We keep coming back for more, more, more.
We burn this one in the office because it has such broad appeal.
